James Whale was left rather surprised by a behavioural expert who came up with some rather unusual ways to tackle childhood obesity.

Hugo Harper was part of the team behind a new report from the Guy's and St Thomas' Charity, which also featured contributions from celebrity chef Jamie Oliver. The report claiims that inner city childhood obesity is linked to the number of chicken shops in deprived areas, and recommends swapping Walkers crisps for Wotsits.

When Harper spoke to James and Ash about his new report but our hosts were less than impressed, describing his findings as "blindingly obvious."

When Harper broached his big Walkers-for-Wotsits idea, James said his guest's suggestions were "shocking". Ash was more receptive, but suggested Pickled Onion Monster Munch might be a better suggestion.
